What lovely #jb mail! Thanks @TheBookHippie @Kelican17 @Soubhiville @IndoorDame @phatsallylee @Kdgordon88 ! Question: where does one purchase postcard specific stamps?!?

Kelican17 I ask for them at the post office. 3mo
phatsallylee ❤ i just asked for them at the post office. You can buy by the sheet or by rolls of 100. When you send a bunch out it can start to save a few pennies! 3mo

This wasn‘t my favorite by MJ, but there was interesting character development and the ending was a bit unexpected for me. Not short of cringe worthy moments. 😯

Thank you @Kaye @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks & @Kdgordon88 for the Christmas cards! ☃️❄️ Special thanks to @Jas16 for the lovely postcard and TBR list book. Oddly enough I was in the Bay Area for work this week & was a bit sad that there wasn‘t enough time to drop by a bookstore. However, I had one waiting for me when I got home last night! 😄 it‘s almost as if you were psychic 🧐😳😆

Sg1224 Haha Jamie, you are by far better at reading people than you give yourself credit...p.s. did you make the lovely book marks?! I Absolutely adore them! 7mo
JamieLou I did make them! I had my husband buy me a Silhouette cutting machine for my birthday a couple weeks ago, so I was experimenting with it. They were really fun to make and I learned a lot of dos and don‘ts. (edited) 7mo
